Trailing Hardy Pansy ‘Cool Wave’ – pack of 12 jumbo plugs £14.99

It is very hardy (to around -25C!), so it will withstand the worst of the winter whatever the British weather throws at it, producing endless waves of simply gorgeous flowers in shades of golden yellow, violet, mauve, berry purple and white – for nine whole months of the year – hence the name ‘Cool Wave’! They will cascade over the sides of hanging baskets and planters, providing a splash of zingy colour in the dull days of winter. Smothered in big, traditional pansy flowers, this vigorous trailer is set to make its mark on gardens everywhere – it’s a real breeding breakthrough for much better performance in hanging baskets. Grow yours on for around 4 weeks before planting into baskets in autumn then watch as you get the best winter displays youve ever had!
